Splendid bar and restaurant. I arrived on a Friday at opening and settled in with a few beers and lunch. Everything was top notch. The tap selection features ProPig beers as well as favourites from VT, QC and Belgium. The food is delicious with plentiful portions. Interesting bottle list and Heady Topper in cans. Service was fine but probably could of done with another bartender during lunch service. Pleasant atmosphere and the bar is lovely. Also a great whisky and spirit selection. All said, it was a great experience.

World class. The food is phenomenal, as is the beer selection. Lots of great Vermont beer. Great service, very professional and knowledgable. Pretty good prices considering the quality. Good ambiance, clean and stylish without being sterile or pretentious. If you are traveling through Waterbury and are hungry for a meal with good beer, this place is a must-visit.

Comments: Top notch cocktails and awesome food, great staff, love the ambiance, beer list was incredible but it was Hill Farmstead’s anniversary event so that skews it a little. Would go back in a heartbeat.

I have visited a few times since the reopening of the late Alchemist (RIP) and the feel and crowd mostly remained the same which is very fortunate. They refocused on grilled foods and are being rather succesful at that albeit I was never as impressed as I was led to expect being with the food. My best plate ever was one with grilled shrimps that was a one-off I’ve never encountered again and all the rest pales in comparison. Service is always very helpful despite the immense popularity of the place and frequent waiting lines. The tap selection is not even the largest in town, but almost every time I visit, I feel like drinking 50%+ of what’s on offer which means that the quality level is very high indeed. Prices are also rather high though with serving sizes being especially small and not always with appropriate glasswares here, leading to pricey beers for Vermont. I’ve never even had to browse at the bottle list. Top notch spot, but my heart belongs to the BlackBack and as soon as I’m done with my plate, for all the great selection available at Prohibition Pig, that’s where I want to head to finish the evening.

I had heard a lot about this place and needed to check it out. Finally found a couple of Lawsons Finest beers on tap here, along with several HF and other tasty beers. They have a hundred or so bottles as well. The pulled pork was pretty damn awesome, and service was quite good. Half pours were $3 and fulls were $5, making them a hell of a deal.

Kitty corner to two other bars featuring several up and coming Vermont beers. The largest and most bar like of the three. I also have a soft place in my heart to the former site of L’Alchemist. The bar and layout retains some of that flavour. More than enough taps for me here, and the HF and Lawson Liquid offerings were great. A few other good taps. One of my favourites on the trip was the dry hopped Ruination.

Large place, packed on a Saturday night. The exact same house beers as the brewery, but the rest of the draft list was solid, even though they were out of my first choice. Draft prices decent. Customer service was solid despite the crowd. I prefer the brewery side but this is a nice place.

We visited Prohibition pig for lunch on a Sunday and were very lucky to get the last table for two! The place has a bustling local vibe to it and was full of friends & families having lunch. They have 24 taps on offer which focusses on the most amazing local breweries, including their own. For us it was all about Hill Farmstead and Lawson’s. They also had Heady Topper and Focal banger, which is what most of the locals were tucking into. Food consisted of pretty delicious bbq. Service was attentive and friendly. It’s hard not to love this place. A must-visit.

Well, it is impossible not to be nostalgic when one walks in here. The setup is pretty much the same as The Alchemist’s was, save for a few more tables in the back. Lots of former Alchemist employees as well. The aroma of smoked meat permeates the place; hard to complain, really. I didn’t eat here the first time around, but I certainly will next time. The beer menu is large and includes Heady Topper, which is extremely rare on draft. (The only other place that has it for now is Hen of the Wood, also in Waterbury, one of New England’s premier restaurants). Waterbury has so many great little bars for such a tiny town; Prohibition Pig is a strong contender from the get-go. Good job.

Heady on draft, half and full pours, a couple HF and a bunch of other local beers. This place is worth coming to drink. Our server was a bit slow and lost our food for an hour, but the food was great albeit with small portions. My fav spot in Waterbury.
